Gallo ruined our impression of wines with a screw cap, Franzia continues to ruin our impression of boxed wine, and Riunite ruined our impression of Lambrusco. But just as folks in the 70's had the good sense to retire their leisure suits, it's time to rid yourself of any preconceived notions you have about this grape. For those of you born in the 1980's, or later, nevermind. This Lambrusco is DRY with a nice spritz. It has wonderful aromas and flavors of dark cherry and plum, herbs, and a touch of black pepper. Chill it down, pop the cork and you'll have a fabulous pairing for holiday fare.
Sparkling, bubbly, fizzante, we love these wines. While Champagne only comes from Champagne, France (and it deserves its own name, it is a unique and special wine in this category) there are plenty of excellent champagne style wines at all price points. We look forward to sharing them with you.
